I have a Devillbiss TARV-5050 compressor. Can you tell me what the CFM rating is?

by Jim
(Gimli , Manitoba, Canada)

I need to order a new gun for my sandblasting cabinet. It currently has a 5/16" ID knozzle. Just wonding if the 5050 has enough CFM to run this gun? Or if I should go down a size?

Jim, I couldn't find the specs for this compressor.

What's the HP of the motor? You can expect to get around 3-4 CFM of compressed air at 90 PSI for each HP of motor.

cfm ratings
by: Anonymous

Every search I do for this compressor comes up "no results found" even from the devillbliss site itself.Anything near to this compressor comes up with a medical type air compressor and not industrial shop use.I would call devilbliss themselve to find this out.I rebuild air compressors and sandblasters and know alot of sources concerning them,but cannot find nothing on the model you have given.If you can give me more info on the amps,stages,volts duty rating etc. I could then break it down for you mathematically and get an answer extremely close to the info you seek.Again any devilbliss models even close to these numbers are all medicall purpose compressors

5hp Devilbiss crankcase ventilation

by Bob
(Salem, Ohio)

I recently got a 60 gallon, 5hp Devilbiss compressor from a friend that doesn't want to put 220 in his garage.

I traded him a 25 gallon Craftsman single cylinder unit.

We both feel as though we got a good deal, but I want to make sure I have the set up right on this compressor.

I put a new air filter on it and cleaned the intake really good.

I got it warm, drained the oil and put synthetic 30wt in the crankcase.

I timed the cut in/out and it seemed to be in spec. It cuts in at 100psi and out at 140psi and does so in 1 minute 20 seconds.

I installed a regulator and set it at 90psi.

The only thing i'm not completely comfortable with is the crankcase vent. It is wide open. There is no filter element. I don't have a manual and can't find anything online about this issue. The vent is a plate with 4 screws that bolts to the side of the crankcase right at the crank center. The plate has a tube that extends about 2" above the crank center. I would assume there should be something in that tube to keep debris from possibly entering the crankcase. Do you have a suggestion?

thanks,
Bob

________________
Bob, does this model have an oil sight glass, or is it possible that the tube you refer to is where there used to be a dip stick inserted. The dip stick cap would have come with a small opening to allow venting.

Anyone else with a 5 HP Devilbiss can comment on this?

Thanks,

Bill

Moisture in compressor crankcase
by: Anonymous

compressor oil site glass show that the oil is getting moisture (cloudy to almost white) this only seem to happen during high humid days. It is also close to a car wash spray.
Would it be ok to run a 3/4" tube about 20" from the compressor and attach it to the crankcase breather (it about a 3/4" tube.

I don't see why not, as long as the I.D. of the hose is larger than the intake port dimension. Reason being, adding length for air to flow along will decreases the flow somewhat, and you don't want to starve the intake.

In fact, use as large a hose or pipe that you can... err on the side of caution and then you can move the intake even farther from the moisture source.

As the compressor motor runs heat is generated and that allows higher moisture levels in the air, including the sump, which dump free water when the area cools.

Possible Dipstick?
by: Bob

I don't know if there was a dipstick or not. The drain plug on the bottom of the case is a square headed pipe plug that threads into the case horizontally. There is a smaller square headed pipe plug just above it that I assumed was the fill hole. It is threaded in vertically. I also assumed that was the fill level. I filled the oil to that level and put the plug back in (16oz.). I hope I did the right thing. That fill plug is a full 2" below the crank center. I know for a fact that my oil level is 2" below the crank center. I assume it is a slinger style oiling system. I'd be sick to find out that i'm missing a dipstick and don't have nearly enough oil in the crankcase.

thanks again,
Bob

Sounds like you're good to go with 16 oz. of oil, Bob. So, no dipstick.

DeVilbiss 6.5 hp two stage. Pump model is ABP-459. 59N0060KX0919 - squealing noise?

by Dave
(California)

80 gallon/6.5 hp two stage. Pump model is ABP-459. sticker on pump also says 59N0060KX0919.

Compressor seems to run well but has recently started making a high pitch squeel after about 15 seconds of running time or as I start to see pressure build. The squeel seems to definately be coming from the top of the head. Possible cause? I'm thinking of selling it to a friend and don't want to feel guilty if its going to be a costly repair.

Half the air cleaner foam got sucked into the compresser and now it is pushing oil out of it.Sounds like a rod knocking.Just changed oil.
